Efergy Pro Installation Guide

You can easily set up your Efergy Pro by following this step-by-step guide

How it works

CT Sensors are clipped to particular wires in or near the fuse box. A lead from the sensor is connected into the Transmitter, which sends real-time data wirelessly to the Gateway. The Gateway is connected to your home’s Wi-Fi network and sends real-time and historical energy use to Efergy Pro Cloud and the app.

Setup the Sensors & Transmitter

It is typically a quick job to fit the sensor clamps in your fuse box, however, you need to be sure that you put the clamps on the right cables to ensure the correct readings.

The diagrams bellow show how to place the sensors on different systems.

 

Make sure that you put the clamps on the right cables to ensure the correct readings.

Type I / Single-phase Solar PV Deployment
Type II / Single-phase Solar PV deployment
  • Most common type in homes and apartments in Europe, Asia and many other parts of the world.
  • Make sure the arrow mark on the Sensors is always towards the Fuse Box.

Type III / 120/240V Split-phase Solar Generation
  • Most common type in the US and Canada.
  • Make sure the arrow mark on the Sensors is always towards the Fuse Box.
  • Voltage on the app should be set at 120V.
  • When using the Y-Cable make sure the sensor are the same type.

Type IV / Net Metering with Junction Box

Find the Main Feed Wires

 

Locate the Live Feed Cable on your Panel/Fusebox. This is normally located near the entrance of the house. Always shut down the power to your electrical panel first and proceed with caution!

For example, if you have a single tariff meter you should find four cables exiting the meter (see Diagram A). The feed cable is the live cable exiting from the meter to the fuse box or main switch. Clip the Sensor to Cable 4.

 

Attach the Efergy Pro XL Sensor(s)to Live Feed

 
 

Place the Efergy Pro XL Sensor(s) around the Feed Wires of your electric panel. Pull the clasp to open the Sensor, place it around the feed cable and push the clasp to shut.

 

Make sure the arrow mark is always towards the Fuse Box.

Attach the Efergy Pro Mini Sensor(s) to Live Feed

 

Place the Efergy Pro Mini Sensor(s) around the Live Line coming from the Grid-tie Inverter. Pull the clasp to open the Sensor, place it around the cable and push the clasp to shut.

 

Make sure the arrow mark is always towards the Fuse Box.

Connect the Sensor(s) Jack Into the Transmitter

 

The Efergy Pro Transmitter has 3 input channels to plug in the Sensor clamps with or without a Y Cable. Make sure you plug the Sensor jack in the right position.

Connect the Sensor(s) Jack into the correct input port on the Transmitter:

  • Port 1: Multi-circuit
  • Port 2: Energy consumption
  • Port 3: Solar generation

Note: Insert sensor(s) jack before powering on the Transmitter.

 

Power On the Transmitter

 

  1. Make sure you insert the sensor(s) jack first, then power on the Transmitter.
  2. Open the Transmitter case and insert three AA batteries (not provided).
  3. Mount the transmitter on the wall next to or above the electric panel.

Efergy recommends high quality alkaline or lithium batteries for the best product performance. Battery life will depend on environment (up to 12 months).

 

Power On the Gateway

Plug the Gateway into a USB Power Supply (not included in the product set).

The Power LED will turn solid green showing that the Gateway is powered on. The Transmitter LED on the middle may be red (this will depend on whether or not you have set up the Transmitter) and the Wi-Fi LED will flash redindicating that is ready for Wi-Fi configuration.

 

Connect to the App

Download the Efergy Pro app free from the App Store or Google Play.

Setup is simple – open the app, sign up and follow the on-screen steps.

  2. Enter the Gateway’s MAC address and Serial Number, located on the product label, which is printed on the back of the device. Type the information manually or tap the camera icon on the right to scan the barcode.
  3. Make sure the MAC Address and Serial Number inputed match the label information before moving to the next step.
  4. Tap Configure your device.

Set Voltage

 

The electricity supply voltage is set to 230V by default. You can update your electricity supply voltage on this screen. Tap Confirm voltage.

 

Connect your Mobile to Wi-Fi

 

Verify your mobile device is connected to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network. Do not use data (3G or 4G) on your mobile. We suggest temporarily turning your data off.

 

Note:

  • Compatible only with 2.4GHz wireless band.
  • To connect to a 2.4GHz network, go to Settings > Wi-Fi. In this menu you will see all detectable networks in your area. Locate the SSID for your network, and tap on the SSID with the 2G or 2.4 end notation.

Wi-Fi Set Up

 

Before continuing with the installation, please ensure the following:

  • Your Efergy Pro Gateway is powered on.
  • Your mobile device is connected to the Wi-Fi network.
  • Make sure that your mobile device is connected to the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi. Efergy Pro Gateway is only compatible with 2.4GHz wireless band networks.
  • Do not use data (3G or 4G) on your mobile. We suggest temporarily turning your data off.
  • Tap the Submit button.

Note: If the Automated Process fails, please untick the “Automated Process” option and try again.
